will talk a little bit about president obama, bill gates already playing tribute and the u.s. secretary-general. you have just seen that moving piece by james. want to talkle and want to pay tribute and want to recognize what happened to them on that day was changed millions of lives. >> that is absolutely right. every south african, regardless of their political view, was touched by that moment. there were some on the far right who were appalled. they felt the trade by their leaders. the hard-line had been taken since 1948 and it had been abandoned. they were frankly frightened. a schoolteacher at code. white south africans utterly , allized nelson mandela of those who stood behind him. it was a dangerous moment. immediatelyears after his release were dangerous moments. time fora dangerous him to lead to persuade all south africans that they could actually feel safe in the hands of the government they had just elected. it is impossible to exaggerate the extent to which he had to more political stature. everybody around him i think acknowledged that he was head and shoulders above them.
discussing with you a moment ago, i talked to four former aides to president obama. the white house isn't confirming this but all four of them said they expect that president obama will, in fact, attend that ceremony along with other world leaders. we saw president obama come into the briefing room as in the clip that you played tonight where he referred to nelson mandela as an inspiration, an example for him from the earliest phase of his political stirrings as a student at occidental college where he attended an anti-apartheid protest there. of course, nelson mandela is someone who was the first african-american or excuse me, the first african leader, black african leader of south africa which had been governed by a white government, president obama followed in that footstep as the first african-american president of the united states, and he said that he would spend the rest of his life trying to live up to and follow nelson mandela's example. what was so notable about nelson mandela was that he actually achieved in practice the promise that president obama had held out in 2004 at th
did start early for him, this influence, didn't it? >> it did. obama has talked many times about his first political acts, chris, were protests as anti-apartheid movement that was such a big movement in the united states. and, you know, a young obama having a political awakening found his activism in the movement sparked by the people in the united states and around the world who were using boycotts and such to fight south africa. >> and they met, as we said, and there's just that one picture i think it was snapped by his driver in 2005. he's a senator from illinois. look at that. >> it's an interesting back story, because i -- the man who took it david cats traveled around all the time with him, but he's a very good photographer and always kept a camera with him and would go to other things. new to take wla would became historic pictures. that photo you showed of a silhouetted obama, it was right next to his desk. >> you know, this photograph, we are told ended up on the desk both of president obama in the white house and of nelson mandela in his office back in south africa. we all
. when is a administration came in, when obama talked in 2008 about fundamental transformation of the nation, they went after the major pillars of u.s. capitalism. they went after the health care sector, the financial sector, and they went after the energy sector. they really like this shows they don't care about the eagles, they only care about remaking the energy sector. we have seen so many green energy boondoggles that have cost the taxpayers billions of dollars, now we are going to see the lives of eagles caught up in the fundamental transition. stuart: if they were to say he cannot kill golden eagles, you have to shut windfarms down. so, the point is these sacrificed. charles: didn't we hear the argument a porcupine caribou, re-conception of certain salamanders. the polar bear, the woodpecker, they use all these things even with keystone people talk about certain species that were endangered. according to the wildlife society lecture 888 were killed. 573 birds were killed. this is mass killing of species of animals that supposedly to your point the obama crowd loved these
into this a little bit talking about young people. what the obama care package is was intentionally designed to screw over young people. was it a mistake? it wasn't an accident. it was a package intentionally designed to screw over young people. he's spending all day now talking about young people. to your point, it's very true. we never tried at a federal level ending junk lawsuits. never tried having doctors and hospitals tell us what they are charging. never tried pooling people together to drive down costs and increase access. we have never tried it. we proposed it. they shut us out from the process. the democrats say either european health care or nothing. that's a false choice. most would vote him out of office. >> 50 -- >> go ahead. >> 52% of young people would recall the president based on this law. >> and 57% don't want obama care. now you look at another core constituency. we heard after the election about the latino vote in america. look at the latest poll out of gallup. the support of of the president has gone down 23% among hispanic voters. that's a huge discrepancy. from where he was a
is also freaking out. >> we were talking a few minutes ago about obama care. and you mentioned it's the law of the land. if it's the law of the land, the president shouldn't keep ignoring the law. a president under a constitutional system doesn't have the ability to pick and choose which laws to follow and that's the same pattern you see in dictatorial society where it says ignore the law, go with the power of the president instead of the written law. >> the president's a dictator. you know, they're running out of talking points when they turn to fear. and now creepy uncle sam is back. the group backed by billionaires is again trying to scare young people from buying insurance. so why the freakout? because the law is working. 27,000 people enrolled in health care plans through the federal website just on tuesday. 56,000 signed up over three days. and the demand's even higher. more than 3.7 million people visited the site this week. these are real people who are getting covered. >> helen signed up for the market place wednesday. she's a single mom who's self-employed and putting he

. and you are able to afford rent. but you know, president obama always talks about wanting to grow the economy from the middle class out, not from the top down. when you look at this jobs report, are there other weaknesses that you see? >> i just think that in general, the big weakness here is we still don't have enough jobs. 200,000's a great number but realistically, at this point in this recovery, we need to start worrying about is that going to be a high water mark as opposed to a step up to like 300,000, 400,000 a month which is what would really again, create the kind of pressure upward that we're just getting everybody a raise, basically. >> jim tankersley, thank you so much. we appreciate it. you look very sharp. i appreciate the beard as well. >> you should try it. >>> coming up on "the lead," he was in the oval office while nelson mandela sat in a prison cell. coming up next, we have former president jimmy carter who will share his memories of the south african leader with you and me. >>> plus, you might think partisan politics couldn't taint the legacy of an internationa
now and hear from brianna keilar. this was a personal moment for barack obama who talked about the influence of nelson mandela when he was a young man. >> reporter: that's right, john. it was just huge. president obama was 19 years old when he first got involved with the anti-apartheid movement. the first time he gave what being call a political speech was back in 1981. he was a sophomore at occidental college when he spoke out against apartheid. for president obama, nelson mandela was a personal hero and personal idol who struggled his earliest ambitions. >> i am one of the first who grew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue of policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> reporter: they met in person only briefly in 2005 before obama became president. the two leaders, each standing in history as the first black president of his nation, spoke occasionally by phone. president obama penned the forward for mandela's 2010 memoir "conversations with myself." he wrote his example helped awakened
at this hour? >> from the speech we saw from president obama, the comments he made, one of the most striking was when the president talked about his own influence, the influence it had on his own life from nelson mandela specifically hisrencing the fact that first political act, his first act of political activism dating back to 1981 was when he helped lead and make a speech at an anti-apartheid rally at occidental college. 19-year-old barack obama with the beginnings and the roots of his political career being inspired by nelson mandela and it talks about the responsibility he feels going forward to emulate and live up to the example that he set. >> who are we hearing from him and he'll? what did they have to say? aboutce the news broke his death, there has been a real out touring of statements from every possible corner of capitol hill to imagine everyone from republicans, democrats, ted , dickmitch mcconnell durbin, nancy pelosi. regardless of political ideology , there is a real outpouring of support and memories in honor of nelson mandela and his contributions. a lot of people talking a
to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as many as six people taken to a hospital in mexico for radiation poisoning. think of the timing here becaus

zuma announced the passing of nelson mandela to south africa and the world that president obama took to the briefing room to talk about his reminiscenses and everything that nelson mandela meant to him. some time in the evening, you are right. the president placed a phone call to jacob zuma. he expressed condolences from himself and michelle obama. he called nelson mandela a man of kindness and humility, influencing his own life, and the president only met nelson mandela one time as a senator. he had visited south africa twice, once as a senator and once this past june with his family, unable to meet the ailing nelson mandela at this point. the president took to the briefing room, talked about the inspiration that nelson mandela was for him, talked about the anecdote. nelson mandela and a struggle against apartheid, inspired president obama as a student in the late '70s, and early '80s, to become involved in politics for the first time. let's listen to what obama had to say. >> we will not see the likes of nelson mandela again. it falls to us as best we can for the example that we se
't lose by much. talk about income inequality. push hard for obama care. let those personal stories come. and i guarantee you, some red states are going to flip. but it's going to take an investment to get it done. our next question comes from roosevelt barfield. why is the right wing bashing the pope? well, they didn't bash the pope until the pope started talking about income inequality. until he started talking about greed. until he started talking about the worshipping of money. and where the poor are in the world. and in this country. he started addressing all of those moral issues. and that, of course, was like a stick in your hand into a wasp's nest and all of the bugs come out after you. that's what has spurred all of this. this is a pope that is political. this is a pope that is willing to say things that other popes haven't said in contemporary time. and it strikes right at the heart of republican policies, and the conservatives, they just can't take it. stick around, "rapid response panel" next on "the ed show" after this. >>> i'm seema mody with your cnbc market wrap. stocks r
in the country. when president obama was here a few short months ago, he talked about the ways it has the potential to be an after our strengths are linked to one another. i think that's the best way to memorialize all that he meant to us. >> we know december 15th is when will be the final good-bye, if that's appropriate to say, we'll see each other again, but the final good-bye here. i can't imagine there won't be a television set or radio on where people will gather and watch this moment that will be unmatched as far as the diversity and the range of people who sincerely say that this man changed their life, set the compass of their direction in life. >> that's so true, tamron. during the anti-apartheid moment, we used to chant all the time, the whole world is watching, here again he has made certain that the world world is watching, everyone is pausing and reflecting on what this man meant to us all. we count ourselves blessed to have lived in the shadow of his grace all of these years and it's just going to be one of those moments spoken of for years. where people ask where you we
'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. can the republican party capitalized on president obama's falling popularity that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. new poll from the research center is bad news for president obama across the board on health care policy, 59% of americans disapprove. 37% approve. on the economy, a whopping 65% disapprove. 31% approve. and on immigration policy, 60% disapprove of the president's take, just 32% approve. so you can see the president is standing among americans is at its lowest point ever. the question now becomes can the republican party capitalize in the grand ole party still divided between so-called moderate republicans and committed conservatives. the brawl has been going on for years. and right now the tea party is right in the middle of it. according to real clear politics average, a possible presidential candidates. chris christie a moderate is ahead at 189 percent. conservative rand paul 17%. senator ted cruz 12%. florida senator marco rubio 12%. congressman paul ryan 11%. and jeb bush 10.5%: all these men have a chance to

friday. >> president obama had an interview with chris mathews on "hardball." we'll talk on the other side. >> both hillary and joe would make outstanding presidents and possess the qualities that are needed to be outstanding presidents. they -- i think joe biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever and he has been with me at my side in every tough decision that i've made from going after bin laden to dealing with the health care issues to you name it, he's been there. hillary i think will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we've ever had and helped to transition us away from a deep hole we were in when i first came into office around the world. >> so, of course, he was weighing in on possible democratic candidates for 2016. what do you make of that? is that as far as he's ever going to go? >> two things. the first thing is that this is still very early and i think ha the president doesn't really want to be talking about his predecessor, but the second point is, it's good news for the vice president because he is being mentioned as
fixed. >> which is what's behind two initiatives. first, the 21-day sales pitch for obama care that is starting to work and the other, which is to try and change the subject and the other to talk about income equality, because it's a message the president believes pete beats the republican message of no. in what obama's trying to do is change their mind and distract them to try to minimize the political. >> that's a tough mountain to climb, don't you think? this is all the talk, man, until you figure it out, got a big challenge. >> he's had a couple of year to get ready for this thing and failed miserably getting it out of the box. young people are not going to sign up and if you don't get a bunch of young people to take care of some old people like me, it's not going to o work. i think where he's making a mistake is by forcing the democratic party to go run on this. he's campaigning on this. making democrats run on this. in 2010, we elected a republican congress in the house because of obama care. we're going to basically get another shot here of winning a senate on the same i
something that we probably, president obama said, we'll never see again. >> john meacham, i was talking to my 10-year-old girl about nelson mandela, explaining about him, what he had done, the sacrifices he made, the way he changed this country and the world. i'm wondering, though, of course, my 10-year-old girl didn't know an awful lot about nelson mandela. and we won't even talk about my 5-year-old boy. he'll get it in years to come. what do history books write about this man? >> the last lines of the 20th century. he was arguably with john paul ii, martin luther king, he was someone without whom the world would be radically different and worse. while america mourns him today we should remember that america was not always with him. i think that's an important part of history. president reagan opposed the point signatures of sanctions in the 1980s against south africa. it was only in 1990 four years after mandela was released he was received by president bush. he was part of the complex cold war world. this is a more complicated history that the country of the united states should take
and so much remembrance has come pouring in from all over washington. president obama recalled how as a young man he was first inspired to political action back in college by going to an anti apartheid rally. and he talked about the role model that mandela. the president yesterday remembered his words that nelson mandela said he wanted to see an ideal, a society where there was democracy and freedom for all. >> nelson mandela lived for that ideal, and he made it real. he achieved more than could be expected of any man. and said he has gone home. and we have lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings with on this earth. he no longer belongs to us. he belongs to the ages. >> remembrances also come in from past presidents. stephanie? >> and libby several members of congress also expressing their admiration for mandela. >> i don't think there's one member of congress we haven't heard from. and also people taking inspiration from his political role. john boehner put out a statement today and yesterday that said this . . . nelson mandela addressed joint
a lot of fights to be had, even about saving obama care, but it was really stunning to me. he talked about persistence and the connection between a president and the public and that motivating persistence, but that's different than fighting. >> about why he would continue to fight. and as i say, comparing politics to rolling a boulder up the hill is a little different from the way he began his life in politics like popping a champagne cork. this is tuff stuff. he showed his own motivation. he said i remember every day. >> guy, he's been there before. i didn't have to remind him of being in that car all alone, an african-american guy, heading out into the suburbs of illinois where no black guy's won anything, he's got the map, i've got to discover illinois so i can be elected senator after being beaten in a south chicago race. >> after the 2010 election, remember that, that was a tremendous blow, and he sort of reassessed his presidency and how you can move forward and started emphasizing some of what he talked about today, the difference in values between him and the republicans. whe
opportunity to see in person a president talking about what it's like to be president, while he's actually president. now, he's gone from superman to cisiphus, a much more mature view and the more case for obama care. for you folks to consider obama care as a measure of community in america. that's what motivates barack obama. he knows it's tough -- >> and he gave it up. >> the last 15 minutes of this extraordinary were extraordinary. i've never seen anything like it, where a president kind of unburdened himself to you about why he's in the ball game. and i thought he made a very compelling case for his own decency, whatever the screwups were managerially, and they were real. >> and chris, can i say, i felt like we saw two interviews with the president. in the first half of that interview, you saw a man who is incredibly frustrated by what i think he sees as the smallness of the debate in washington. where we don't talk about the big things, the big sweeping issues that matter to the country, or we boil it down to petty fights, frustrated incredibly with the republicans and with the media.
unhappy for health options care under obama care. >> i am not surprised the majority leader wants to talk about health care. much of that legislation he is all the times the republican party has tried to repeal health care. clear thisake it will is a very positive though for the american people. the bill to which the gentle man refers covered less than 3 million people of the 30 million to 40 million people who have no insurance. tens of millions of people i predict by the middle of next going to be having coverage and health care insurance because we passed this bill. he is right. the rollout is terrible. in president is disappointed that. it is being worked on. he doesn't recall the rollout of the subscription drug hill. -- bill. medicaret recall that had a tough rollout for a couple years. i am not saying they don't believe it. there are people who say we ought to not have medicare. the fact of the matter is the health-care bill is going to work, but it is interesting that when you ask a specific question , it passed in a bipartisan fashion overwhelmingly. health carethe good bill. tha
their families better. what's a better policy starting right now that president obama should be talking about instead of what he's doing, which is hurting poor people such they can make more money no matter how much it costs. >> look, just to be clear. i like the question, but i don't agree with the premise. i do think a moderate increase would help. to answer the part of your question that i agree with, here's what i think he should do. the earned income tax is a very important pro work subsidy. this is a good way to help low-wage people. but for childless adults, adults who don't have kids, it's rea y really -- i would increase the childless adult part of the earned income credit so that single folks can make a decent wage, as well. >> so you -- will you acknowledge i didn't set you up, bernstein? >> not only acknowledge that, i'm ready to give you a hug. >> okay. >> i'm ready to do that to you too. >> all right. man hug. little man hug action. >> where are you? >> i'm in d.c. i'm not willing to come up to jersey to give you a hug. >> that could take a while. and you can use my -- some of
the commercial break. i want to start with howard because you grabbed me. what do we see with the barack obama who is usually a bit d distant, what did we learn from him? >> you got a once in a lifetime opportunity here in a lifetime opportunity to talk to a president about what it's like to be president while he's president. i thought he made the moral case for obama care, for you folks to consider obama care as a measure of community in america. that's what motivates barack obama. he knows it's tough. >> the last 15 minutes of this interview were great. i thought he made a very compelling case for his own decency. whatever the screw ups were manageri managerially. >> in the first half of that interview, you saw a man who was incredibly frustrated by what he sees as the smallness of the debate in washington. or we boil it down to petty fights, frustrated incredibly with the republicans and the media. but in the second half of the interview, i saw the man i met in 2004, where he was an activist using politics to move forward, somebody who really is in league or in line with the way the pope fe
, the british prime minister, david cameron, but first in washington, the u.s. president, barak obama, have both been talking about the massive impact nelson mandela had on the world. >> lost one of the most iifluential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earthh >> one of the brightest lights of our world has gone out. nelson mandela was not just a hero of our time, but a hero of all time. >> reporter: in life, nelson mandela not only brought a democracy and freedom to south africans, he also brought this whole country together. and the hope is now with people of all colors grieving side by side, the hope is that in death, nelson mandela will bring this country back together once more. back to you. >> all right, paul. live report from south africa. thank you very much. >>> it's now three minutes after the top of the hour. headlines today, not heather. she's feeling a little under the weather. we got ainsley earhart. >> heather can't speak this morning. apparently she lost her voice. hope you feel better. but i'm having a lot of fun. >> great
with honey in it. rikola. that's all i've got. >> you're going to be a bumblebee. >> let's talk about the polls. i get it. some of the polls from harvard university. do you disapprove or approve of his job performance? 54% disapprove. do you approve of obama care? 57% disapprove. are you likely to enroll in obama care? 45% unlikely. 22% likely. is that what this is about, chris? >> it is. one of my favorites in that harvard university and student politics poll is where 47% say they would recall the president from office if they could. they would take him out of his job today if they could. by the time we got to the obama care crash, we had six months of the worst beginning of a presidential second term since richard nixon. it was bad. this presidency was off on the wrong track. it was off on the wrong track on the nsa which was a massive breach of trust. this much spying was a massive breach of trust with the voters. young v those issues. they live online, on the internet, on their devices. the president was snooping. he deceived them about that. that breach of trust might have been f

: lessons on life, love and courage." rick, thanks very much for joining us. talk about this relationship between president mandela and president obama. >> you know, wolf, i thought the president was very eloquent yesterday, talking about what president mandela meant to him. in many ways i think mandela was partly responsible for barack obama's own political awakening. one of the great legacies of mandela particularly in america is that it was an awakening for so many people that people were looking at south africa, this land that with terrible prejudice, terrible authoritarian government and we were looking at it as almost a proxy for what had happened in america during the civil rights movement and i think it awakened and it was a revelation for many, many americans. >> i'm sure president obama and i'm sure you'll agree was deeply disappointed when he was in south africa earlier this year, with his family, he was not able to go and meet president mandela, because he was so gravely ill. i'm sure he would have loved to have done that, but he obviously couldn't. he'll head to south africa
